Appeared to have short, wider tube and longer tentacle crown than the otehr Sabella spallanzanii in this area, which is connected to the open gulf. Maybe Sabellastarte? Probably not possible to determine from this limited view.

Compass heading taken of 270° out from beach, located at first shoreline access spot when entering Coffin Bay.

Taken at 4.5m avg. depth @approx 1:30 pm.

Iow tide -> high tide

Near center of channel.

Not 100% sure if this is a Shorthead Seahorse, but it was the closest looking specie I could find.
